  1. Google it and realize the official documentation refers to the old NodeJS API
  2. Go to the “latest” documentation (URL: and see a message saying this is actually also for the older version
  3. Click on the link to the new version
  4. CTRL+F and find nothing that says “batch”
  5. Notice a tiny magnifying glass on the page, and use that to search “batch”
  6. Arrive, finally, on the documentation which is devoid of any examples and requires more clicking to get the definitions of BatchGetCommandInput and __HttpHandlerOptions.
